Read ß PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ì Dennis Prager Dennis Prager Ì 6 characters The Rational Bible Free read ¾ 106 The continuation of Dennis Prager's bestselling five part commentary The Rational BibleWhy do so many people think the Bible the most influential book in world history is ou. Rational Bible Genesis is a line by line exegesis ie analysis of the book of Genesis While this might sound dry it actually brings to life many of stories and provides some fascinating new insights Writing primarily for a secular audience Prager addresses many common objections or misunderstandings about the creation narrative and other stories of the Biblical patriarchs and matriarchs One of the major themes that Prager draws out is the ways in which the God of Genesis is uniue from other gods of antiuity and legend Among others the God described in Genesis isUniversal not tribal This make seem like an odd assertion given God s uniue relationship with the tribes of Israel but Prager presents a number of passages explaining why God is not only the God of the Israelite nationPre existing Unlike most other gods there is no birth story explaining the origin of the God of Genesis Moral God is moral and has a moral will as such God punishes both the pagans and Israelites for their crimes Creates out of nothing The universe is not the product of some cosmic battle or act of copulation Instead God merely speaks Let there be light and there was light God is separate from nature Genesis 11 begins God created the Heavens and the Earth Another important theme is the authenticity of Genesis challenging the idea that the Torah is merely a series of myths concocted to justify the nation of Israel and solidify the priestly class which has been edited over the millennia Prager points out a number of stories and details that would presumably have been removed by a later editor if the intent was just to prop up Jewish mythology For example various passages depict the patriarchs eating non kosher foods marrying a half sister marrying two women who are sisters or engaging in divination practices that were later sternly prohibited by Jewish law and practice More significantly the Genesis depicts the patriarchs as flawed people to take just one example following God s promise to the childless Abram to give him descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven Abram and his wife Sarai apparently give up on God s promise At Sarai s urging Abram then fathers Ishmael by his her maidservant leading to a host of family drama and a line of descendants in conflict with the Jews Later in the saga God speaks to Jacob and promises to be with him and to protect him And yet when faced with the dangerous prospect of meeting with his estranged brother Esau Jacob pleads again for God s protection Prager notes it shows that even if God did appear to us we would soon again have doubts People imagine that God could make His existence so clear our faith would never again falter As the case of Jacob makes clear that is simply not so One of the things that always troubled me is that the creation narrative in Genesis seems at odds with our current scientific understanding of the history of the universe For example it seems strange that in Genesis 111 God creates plants but it isn t until 114 that the sun and moon appear As with many such Bible verses a careful analysis eliminates the apparent contradiction Gen 114 actually says God said Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky suggesting that the celestial objects appeared as the thick primordial clouds dissipated But at a higher level and this is a central point the purpose of the creation narrative isn t to teach science but to teach wisdom about human nature right and wrong and our relationship to God the natural history element of the creation narrative is a secondary purpose and exists as a framework for these important lessons Regarding the alignment of the creation narrative with our scientific understanding of natural history Prager states If Genesis described exactly how the world was created it would be unintelligible to us let alone to all those who preceded us over the past three thousand years It might not even be in intelligible language but in yet to be discovered mathematical or physics euations The Torah must speak in language that is intelligible to human beings in every past generation as well as in every future generation Clearly then it cannot speak in scientific terms At the same time it should not violate essential scientific truths for example it accurately depicts human beings as the last creation we have no idea what science will say about cosmology the beginning of the universe in a hundred years In my lifetime alone science went from positing a universe that always existed to positing a universe that had a beginning the Big Bang So in just one generation the Torah in describing a beginning to the universe went from conflicting with science to agreeing with science Prager points out that another element of the creation narrative is to assert God s mastery over the creatures and forces of nature These things sun moon animals that many cultures have worshiped in various ways are paraded forth as the creations of God preceding the greatest creation Man The passage about the creation of Man is another that I ve found perplexing Thanks to archaeology we now know that homo sapiens have existed for a long time preceded by and sometimes concurrent with other homo species How does all of this fit into the Adam Eve story The first answer is that again the purpose is to teach wisdom about our relationship with each other and with God But from the historical and scientific perspective Prager explains that the Hebrew uses a slightly different word for man in later parts of the passage bringing up the interesting possibility that the first man were creatures that were physiologically similar to humans but which lacked a soul or reasonAs a side note Jordan Peterson s excellent Psychological Significance of the Bible Stories lectures go into some of the ideas of the Adam and Eve story in much greater detail and from a non religious perspectiveThese notes only touch on a few highlights from the book and I have pages of additional excerpts that just aren t practical to condense into a review Definitely worth reading
